You can order the title documents form the Land Registry to determine who the owner is. http://www.landregistry.gov.uk/
This will set out the varies interests that exist within the property.
When people live in land, various interests can develop, especially if children live there or the person makes a contribution towards the property, like paying the mortgage.
I doubt the husband can take a share of the property if there was a divorce. He has made no contribution, nor was he present when the house was purchased (joint tenancy or tenancy in common).
